    Please do Not send your love one to the Augsburg nursing home. My mom was there for two days we had to take her out of there . We saw mice running to different patients rooms and the care for my mom was awful. My mom is a total care patient with a pegtube. The nurse did not give her water flush when it was due and when I inquired about it a hour n a half had already gone pass and I was told the nurse was on her lunch break. The attitudes of the staff was the worst I have seen at any facility. I myself am a patient care technician at the hospital and the care my mother received was horrible. They were not repositioning my mom on changing her because she is in continent. As I speak transportation is on the way to bring her back home . Please do Not put your love one in this place I wouldn't have treated a dog the way this place treated my mom. The reviews rated them for four stars I guess they were paid or maybe it was staff that gave this rating . I would rate them at a zero .

    I went to the nurse about adding clothing, getting a TV and a phone for a loved ones room on the Long Term South side. I realized I left an article of clothing back in the room that I wanted to add for labeling. By the time I got to the room, the TV was in place; the laundry lady was on my heels as I went into the room. And the administrator was walking in. After seeing everything was in order, I proceeded to leave. As I was leaving, my loved one called from the room to tell me that as I was leaving to go get a phone, they had already given them one and hooked it up before I got to my car. The staff is on top of things there. And they tell me the food is good too!!! This is the third loved one we have there for decades.

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.

  Residents Affected
Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
Actual harm that is not immediate jeopardy G H I
No actual harm with potential for more than minimal harm that is not immediate jeopardy D E F
